Abstract -
Authentication happens to be a fundamental security service in cluster based wireless sensor networks. This project will focus on designing a lightweight authentication scheme that will aim at achieving authentication of cluster members with cloud enabled cluster heads. This model also presents a hierarchical and on-demand cluster maintaining method in the clustered wireless sensor networks, ensuring that the network can identify and get rid of malicious nodes, achieve cluster-formation, selfmanagement and self-sustenance based on the random/parallel cluster header selection algorithm and a pre-distributed key scheme. This project will address secure mechanism on nodes joining in or quitting from network and a secure clustering algorithm based on the ant colony approach is proposed to make sure that mobile nodes joining in and quitting from network safely is based on authentication and secret telecommunications. An integrated solution is designed and developed to ensure efficient management, energy saving and information security for wireless sensor network, simulation results will show that the proposed model is promising in terms of networking security, efficiency and adaptability.
